Elm House by Paul Tilse & Vanessa Hawes

Elm House is the latest Canberra project by Paul Tilse & Vanessa Hawes. The structure has beautiful unity, sitting between a an Elm Tree in the front of the home and a Japanese Maple in the back.

Elm house has emerged as a modern, sophisticated and welcoming home. The design team have loved using Glosswood’s timber lining in their previous residential builds, and this project was no exception! Clear Ash lining boards were the primary material for the homes internal and alfresco ceilings. It was selected due to the soft golden tone that mirrors the oak flooring and cabinetry.

The interior is a clever design that brings a range of materials together. The design team wanted to introduce an architectural element which would expand on the modern nature of the home. What attracted Vanessa to select Glosswood’s Designer Lining was the strong leading lines of the profile. The timber lining has a beautiful shadow-line, and creates connection between the inside and out.

The materials speak for themselves; the beautiful natural timber adds depth and warms the interior. The honey-toned Glosswood is complimented by the solid timber suspended in concrete in the adjoining kitchen.

The home is liveable and functional, and has a relaxed aesthetic. Explore how the design team have used Glosswood’s timber lining previously by clicking here.
